A Story of Fate

Today was a busy day, I had calls, and lunch time Toastmasters, and things over lapping, but I was handling it fine. Sure, I was craving chocolate, and may have had a teensy bit of Diet Pop, but I needed something else. So, in the 30 minutes I had free from 12:30-1:00, I dashed to Jamba Juice to grab and a smoothie (Peach Perfection all fruit smoothie with Whey Protein, yummm) while I waited for beloved smoothie in the City Center I glanced in the window at Len Druskin, I'd never really been in there, but I saw a cute belt in the window. Jamba Juice was taking their sweet, sweet time making my smoothie, so I decided to peak my head in to check out the belt. I was on my way to the belts when I saw it, there it was, laying out on the table as if it was waiting especially for me, this beauty:
I've been looking for a necklace like this for a good four months, I love this style, LOVE this style, with the beads and the little flower on the side, but everything I've seen is either over priced, or looks like puke. Nothing like the styles I see gals wearing on TV that are cute and clean, and can compliment anything from a sweet sweater to a plain t-shirt. But this necklace, oh this necklace was different, it was everything I was looking for.

I prepared myself to be shocked by the price tag, $75? $100? I turned it over to find a $35 price tag, and then saw the sign and a light bulb went off as I realized everything in Len Druskin is 50% off, I literally gasped out loud. I looked around and saw there was no identical necklace to this one anywhere on the surrounding jewelery tables and I quickly scooped up the one I had been tracing my finger over, it was meant to be!

I walked out of the store with a smile of my face, thinking about how the littlest things can just make one's day...only to realize it was 12:52 and I had eight minutes to get back to my desk for a 1:00 p.m. call, so I slipped off my red heels, gripped them in my hand and darted through the skyways in my nylons. If you saw a flash in a black dress today during the noon hour downtown, that was me.
